The Department for Business Innovation & Skills (BIS) report 'Higher Ambitions' highlights the University of Salford Digital Cluster as a key example of a British university supporting new sector growth and engagement.
This report identifies the Digital Cluster as “a forum and centre of excellence, which combines and leads on high quality research, academic enterprise and teaching in areas of informatics, digital media, and new and convergent technologies”.
The University of Salford is an internationally leading institution in many aspects of media, digital and technology-related research, engagement, and teaching. The University is an integral part of MediaCityUK at Salford Quays, which is the home of many digital and creative industry organisations including the BBC and ITV. Our presence within MediaCityUK places us in a highly advantageous and competitive position to further integrate our expertise with industry and develop our reputation and international reach.
The Cluster offers a forum for the exchange and development of new and pioneering ideas in research, industry collaboration, and teaching, and provides an access point to external bodies and individuals who want to learn more about the kinds of innovative work we do at Salford.
